    “Thoroughly enjoyable”

    The cottage is well equipped and pleasantly furnished. The flowers on the kitchen table when we arrived were a nice touch. We enjoyed the location, being a little off the beaten track. Despite this it was only minutes by car from Keswick. It was also good to be able to access walks on foot from the cottage. The garden with the stream at the bottom is pretty and well maintained.
    The only thing which could have created a problem was the fact that the sitting room door opened directly onto slate steps descending to the hallway. This seemed quite hazardous when accessing the kitchen and toilet after dark. Perhaps the door could be turned round to open into the sitting room? Just a thought...
    We very much enjoyed our stay and look forward to returning.
